As if last night’s Republican National Convention wasn’t enough of a circus thanks to Melania Trump’s plagiarism scandal, actor Scott Baio was also on hand to speak up for Donald Trump and try to secure votes for his presidency.
Outside, in front of dozens of onlookers, Tamron had Scott as a guest on her show fresh from his RNC appearance, and she questioned him about previous misogynistic and disrespectful comments he made about the Democratic presidential nominee and the first lady. As a result, the Happy Days actor was a stuttering, stammering mess who clearly didn’t know what he was walking into.
Scott ended up looking unprepared and flustered during the sit-down. From The Daily Beast:
The host immediately called into question a meme he posted on Twitter just over a week ago that appeared to label Hillary Clinton a “cunt.” “Did you think about that in church when you tweeted it out?” she asked. “You can look at it any way you want,” Baio said, disingenuously. “It’s the word ‘count,’ that’s what she’s standing in front of, I just put it up there. There’s no commentary attached to it, I didn’t call her anything, and the fact that you question my faith over putting up a picture is not nice.”
It was nice to see the host take members of the Republican party to task for at least some of the derogatory and misogynistic things that have been hurled at both the FLOTUS and Hillary.
